Went to see Dr. Spencer at 8 A.M. He changed my medicine. Now taking a “Hypo” injection in left arm after every meal, and a dose of Nux Vomica (?) one hour before meals. Managed to keep down a bowl of bean soup. Very weak and have lost from 10 to 15 pounds in weight.

Dr. Spencer diagnoses my case as Chronic Sea-sickness and recommends that I be relieved from sea duty and returned to shore duty, as he can prescribe no permanent cure.
